In perusing Susan SontagÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬Å"A WomanÃ¢â¬â¢s BeautyÃ¢â¬ , she clarifies that ladies think they have a commitment to be excellent and that they consider what they look like more significant than what their identity is. Sontag likewise includes that ladies are once in a while fixated on their external excellence that they dismiss their internal magnificence. Design and the Media both have taken external excellence excessively far for ladies. In this general public today, ladies are more constrained by other ladies on what they look like. Ladies judge other ladies about their looks yet men donÃ¢â¬â¢t do likewise, on the grounds that it is consideredÃ¢â¬ unmanlyÃ¢â¬ as Sontag states. Ladies normally attempt to be proper and wonderful to pull in men. Sadly, they have gone to extremely significant levels of fixation on themselves that they forgot about their motivation of being wonderful and their situation in this general public. Sontag likewise contends that ladies simultaneously have the thought in their psyches that being delightful will win them a specific notoriety and spot in the public eye, and that excellence brings force and achievement. Indeed, even young ladies grow up have these equivalent thoughts in their psyches and as indicated by Sontag, Ã¢â¬Å"they are educated to see their bodies in parts and to assess each part separatelyÃ¢â¬ . In current days excellence is controlled as a type of self-abuse. During the time spent growing up, young ladies may overlook how canny they are and their objectives throughout everyday life.

Start of nineteenth century was entirely different from the eighteenth century; this was a progressive time where industrialism was ascending against agribusiness, nationalization against state particularization and want of opportunity was going against bondage. In any case, this ethical optimism isn't accepted as a fitting purpose behind the war. As per a few students of history, it is likewise called as the war of intensity and practical opulence. It is said that South was financially bounteous than the North. It was taking in substantial income in exchange and business in examination of North. North was not prepared to acknowledge this reality and this came about as the Civil War. When of war, South involved a zone as extensive as Western Europe and Ã¢â¬ËNorthÃ¢â¬â¢ has a key task to attack and vanquish the southern confederation. In this war, southerners were battling for freedom, self-assurance, self-government and conservation of life. By the by, aftereffects of this war turned into the choice focuses for American history as the war developed the posterity of Nationality in Northerners. Southerners needed to be isolated from the American Union and Northerners were not is the help of that. In the fight against southerners, hardly any episodes filled in as the defining moments of Civil War and American History too. As occasion, Northern Unions hang on Kentucky and Border States in considered as the primary defining moment of American common war. This was of an incredible significance for Northerners. Indeed, even leader of the country, Abraham Lincoln said that Ã¢â¬ËI canÃ¢â¬â¢t consider loosing KentuckyÃ¢â¬â¢, Kentucky was a southern state. Considered as the main present day war, the common war of America made the country, which is known as Ã¢â¬ËUnited States of AmericaÃ¢â¬â¢. During this war, Abraham Lincoln was mostly centered around Border States. He was not for self-government in these states.

These vehicles were equipped with weaponry. Clinics: This was the first run through when medical clinics were set in combat zone. Ladies, for example, Clara Barton and Dorothea Dix worked in these emergency clinics to give clinical medicines to inured warriors.

This was the first run through with regards to utilizing hounds as defensive layer. Photography and Telegraph-when Ã¢â¬ËPhotographyÃ¢â¬â¢ and Ã¢â¬ËTelegraphyÃ¢â¬â¢ science had been presented. Armed force troops utilized the study of photography is taking pictures of foe position and Telegraph helped them in sending pressing messages. This is considered as a shelter made from the demolition of Civil War. Mystery Service: Both sides utilized profoundly organized covert operative support of addition information on armed force developments. Ladies and slaves assumed significant job in this. Work force: Numbers of African Americans battled in the Civil War was not less, the greater part of them took an interest in the war from the side of Union armed force.

A yearning win for Abraham Lincoln, common War was the first run through when privileges of uniformity were accepted to be an explanation of war.

My first day as a real PA I remember my first day on the job like it was yesterday. I was petrified . . . To put it mildly. When I ask other PAs about their first day they often proclaim having had a certain sense of calm. For me, it was pure fear. Possibly, it was due to my situation at the time. I was working as a brand new grad in a National Health Service Corps approved clinic, pretty much solo, in the middle of a very rural community with patients who spoke mostly Spanish. Sadly, at the time, I spoke little to none. The fear that had compounded in my mind was based on a variety of predeterminedscenarios which often ended with my patient either dying or coming very close to it. I had conceived of millions of different horrific situations mostly based on plots from my beloved medical TV shows like ER, House, and Grey's Anatomy. My internal record played something like this: "I dont have enough pediatric experience." "My orthopedic skills are shoddy at best." "I have never actually written a prescription." "Pap smears? Oh boy, as a male PA student I only got to do two during my OB rotation." "Vertical mattress suture? Yes, no problem I did it on a pig foot." "What if I make a mistake and get sued, or lose my job, as an NHSC scholar I will owe 4x my loans, and I will never work again . . . ahh!!!" Hit play, pause, and repeat. Faking it till you're making it For the first time in my life, I was going to have to trust in my diagnostic skills. Doctors dont have to overcome this fear in the same way PAs do. Doctors have a residency to ease into things. As PAs it is just one day you are a student then the next day youre a prescribing medical practitioner. Honestly, as I write this looking back at seven years of clinical experience, it is no wonder I was scared senseless. There is an understandable and probably protective fear that every medical provider should have. That is the fear of harming someone. But there is another fear, and that is less protective, it is the fear of looking like a beginner, having to ask for help, letting your patients down. For me this was difficult. I like feeling in control, I hate doubt, and I pride myself on my medical expertise. But there I stood, vulnerable and scared down to my bones. I arrived at the clinic early this day of course, which only added fuel to my anxiety. I cleaned my workspace (which of course already was clean because I didnt have any patients or charting yet) and I sat there in my chair. Living my dream that I had prepared for so many years. Why did I want to run out of there home to my mom? I cleaned my stethoscope, made small talk with my medical assistant, I re-cleaned my stethoscope and sat nervously awaiting the clinic doors to open. And as the front doors of the clinic did finally open there I stood, exposed, nervous for my patients mostly. In fear that people would discover that I had no clue what I was doing.

In English grammar, anticipatory it involves the placement of the pronounÃ it in the usual subject position of a sentence as a stand-in for the postponed subject, which appears after the verb. It is also called anÃ extraposed subject. Anticipatory itÃ tends to place the emphasis on the verb or (more commonly) on the noun phrase that follows the verb.Ã When the subject works better at the end of the sentence,Ã anticipatory it is often the best way to go, and its commonly heard in everyday speech and found regularly in all types of writing. Shifting Nominal Clauses to the End Gerald C. Nelson and Sidney Greenbaum discuss nominal clauses in An Introduction to English Grammar (2013): It is unusual to have a nominal clauseÃ as the subject of the sentence:Ã That they canceled the concert is a pity. Instead, the subject is usually moved to the end (the postponed subject), and its position is taken by it (the anticipatory subject):Ã ItÃ is a pity that the concert was canceled. Here are some more examples: ItÃ is likelyÃ that well be moving to Glasgow. ItÃ doesnt matter to meÃ who pays for my ticket.Its impossibleÃ to say when they are arriving. ItÃ has not been announcedÃ whether negotiations between the employers and the employees have broken down. The exception is that nominalÃ -ingÃ clausesÃ are natural in the normal subject position: Having a good self-imageÃ keeps me sane.Living in FranceÃ was a wonderful experience. Anticipatory It, Dummy It, and Preparatory It Bas Aarts, Sylvia Chalker, and Edmund Weiner sort through more grammatical it details in The Oxford Dictionary of English Grammar fromÃ 2014. In the first sentence below,Ã it is an anticipatory subject (the grammatical subject), and in the secondÃ sentence it is an anticipatory object: ItÃ is betterÃ to have loved and lostÃ than never to have loved at all.I takeÃ it that you agree with me. ThereÃ is considerable confusion in the usage of the terms available to describe the various functions of the word it. For some grammarians,Ã anticipatory it (used withÃ extraposition) andÃ preparatory itÃ areÃ identical, but they distinguish this usage fromÃ dummy it,Ã as inÃ It is raining. Others use all or some of these terms differently or use one of them as an umbrella term. Examples of Anticipatory It It is a shame that the break-in wasnt immediately reported to the police.It is clear that inadequate resources will have an impact on the care of children with disabilities.Ã Its no concern of mine what happens in this village, so long as my customers dont quarrel when theyre in here. -- John Rhode (Cecil Street), Murder at Lilac Cottage (1940)It is time you stoppedÃ working. You are the head of the family and it is right that you should be at home to see that everything is in order. -- Masti VenkateshaÃ Iyengar, The Curds-Seller in Best Loved Indian Stories, Volume 2 ed. byÃ Indira Srinivasan and Chetna Bhatt (1999)

Capital punishment is most commonly known as the death penalty or punishment by death for a crime. It is a highly controversial topic and many people and great thinkers alike have debated about it. Two well-known figures are Immanuel Kant and John Stuart Mill. Although both stand in favor of capital punishment, their reasons for coming to this conclusion are completely different. I personally stand against capital punishment, but my own personal view on it incorporates a few mixed elements from both individuals as well as my own personal insight. Firstly, in order to understand why Kant and Mill support capital punishment, we must first understand their views on punishment in general. Kant believes in the theory of the categoricalÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦This law of retaliation is taught throughout our entire childhood and applies universally. The golden rule of, Ã¢â¬Å"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,Ã¢â¬ is just another way of phrasing this law. However, in order to prove the effectiveness of this law, we must apply to all circumstances in a situation. ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s when problems begin emerging. Questions about right and wrong, fair and unfair, just and unjust, and deciding who is to be the judge of the problems, are some of the troubles we face. Kant chooses to stick with the principle of retaliation even when dealing with capital punishment. He believes that Ã¢â¬Å"every murderer Ã¢â¬âanyone who commits murder, orders it, or is an accomplice in itÃ¢â¬â must suffer death.Ã¢â¬ (Kant 107) In order for justice to be made, the murderer must suffer the same consequences as his crime. If the murderer is not punished with death, it would not be a fair punishment because people would rather choose to live a tough life than die a quick death; and if this were the case, living would imply a less than equal punishment for the crime. Kant does say, however, that a criminal should only be punished for retribution. Any other reasons for his punishment, such as deterrence, are unacceptable because a human being should Ã¢â¬Å"never be treated merely as a means to the purposes of another.Ã¢â¬ (Kant 105) Doing so would violate the criminalÃ¢â¬â¢s rights as a human being.

I can candidly state that I was and still am really smart but I neer accerted myself, Iguess you could state that I was lazy.Well, during the war I served with General McClellan in Virginia. In 1863 I was assigned to thecavalry and shortly revealed dare and glare as an officer.

We gave them every chance to joiningwith us and listen to us but they refused.Through my many old ages in the military forces I learned non to give into any of my personalfeelings.

What was another aspiration that you had?Custer: Well I was planning and wanted to become President of The United States Of America. Ifeel I would have made a very good president. I would have been the best President that thiscountry had or has or even will have. I was best fit for that position. I am sure you could see thatalso. Bill: Very interesting, well, If it is not too painful can you reminisce the events of that battle, whichwe have tagged as Ã¢â¬Å"CusterÃ¢â¬â¢s Last StandÃ¢â¬ . Custer: Ahh, Ã¢â¬Å"The Battle of Little BighornÃ¢â¬ . My troops and I were in the Montana Territory. Mytroops were starting to get restless. We were out there trying to round up the Sioux andCheyenne Indians and move them to reservations. I was under the command of General Alfred H. Terry, who was heading the expedition. General Terry ordered me to get in a position South ofwhere he suspected the Indians t o be.That morning one of my scouts found an Indian village about 15 miles away. It lay in the valleyalong the Little Bighorn River. I expected to find about 1,000 warriors. But I later found out thatthey really had at least 2,000 warriors. This group, whose leaders included Crazy Horse, Gall andSitting Bull, was probably the largest gathering of Indian warriors in Western History. Bill: What did you do?Custer: Well I did not want to be found out and I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t have the time to wait for Gen. Terry. Instead of waiting, I divided my force into 3 small units in hopes of surrounding the enemy. Alltogether I had a little more than 600 troops. I felt that we could take the Indians easily.One unit attacked and then retreated when it saw the size of the Indian force. A second never gotinto the fight. With only 226 men, I attacked the Indians. In hand-to-hand combat all of my bandwas killed with in the time period of 1 hour. Bill: I am so sorry. I hope you didnÃ¢â¬â¢t mind answering th at question but I am sure that our viewerswanted to know what REALLY happened. Ok now, If you had a choice would you do the samething over again and if you would what would you do different?Custer: ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s a really easy question. If I had a choice I would go back and do the same thingover again and with out one doubt in my mind. I would change a few things. One thing I would dodifferently is to WIN!!!! It wouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t be too hard to do. The second thing would be to do a morethorough job and kill them all!!! Every single one of them!!! Now after that, how can you tell methat I have no heart. Bill: There are two images of youÃ¢â¬ ¦one of a HERO and another of a GLORY-SEEKER. Whichone do you see yourself as?Custer: I donÃ¢â¬â¢t even think that there is a problem with that answer. Yes of course I was lookingfor some glory. Who doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t? But that wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t my main goal. I wanted to help my country. I feelthat I am a very loyal citizen. I died for my country and I wi ll do it again. I notice that a lot of myfollowers feel the same way. I am very impressed with the monument that you have made for me. I was more concerned for my country than for myself or else I would not have tried to win thatbattle. I am a Hero in my mind and not a Glory-seeker. I feel that we could have won that battle ifit had gone the way that I planned it.Bill: What do you mean, how could you have won or why do you think you lost?Custer: We should not have lost that battle. We should have never lost any battle to the inferiorIndians. I feel that if my secondary officers did as they were told and my superior officer hadhelped then we would have won the battle. Reno, one of my secondary officers, was a coward. He could have rescued me if he had not retreated. I also blame Gen. Terry and his aides for notknowing the size of the Indian force. All he wanted was to have glory, he didnÃ¢â¬â¢t care for anyoneexcept for himself. He didnÃ¢â¬â¢t love the country like I did. I felt that I was a better officer than himand should have been promoted to a higher position. For all those people who believed that Idisobeyed TerryÃ¢â¬â¢s orders it is true but I did it because I was there and I knew that I had no otherchoice. Well if you still want to judge me on that we so be it. Well I have to go because I have tobe at West Point in another half an hour and I have to get some groceries for the MrsÃ¢â¬â¢s. Bill: Thank you for the interview, General Custer. I hope that the rest of your life be long andprosperous, if I can say that. That concludes my one on one with General Custer and back to youSue in New York. Good Night America.BibliographyReynolds, Quentin J. CusterÃ¢â¬â¢s Last Stand. Random House 1951.Stein, R. Conrad.

Personal reaction Essay While reading the first couple pages of wild swans, I was immediately amazed by the culture and the perspectives of the citizens. For example, the men valued women with small petite bonded feet and it was said that a woman with large feet would bring shame onto the family. Mind you that so called large feet were what is now a womans average shoe size. Mothers did this to their young daughters. Can you imagine the pain of having a stone smashed on your foot every day? This caused bruising and ingrown toenails which are very disgusting. I cant imagine how men loud have found that attractive. Another thing that caught my attention was how on earth did Change know so much about her great grandmothers life, not only did she know about it, but she described it in detail, and all of her stories seem credible. Changes Wild Swans, has many situations where a Chinese woman was affected by their culture.
